Everywhere we look
nearby news, activity
we can’t escape
unless we fly
above it all.

It takes a herd of eyes,
a flock of senses
to survive the wild
and domestic

of this world.
No time to lollygag
when everyone becomes
someone’s breakfast.
Pay attention.

    A poem for our times, for sure, John.


  2. John-
    Well said!! I agree with Susanne.
